For fans of The Den, it’s time to get excited as it’s coming back! As part of RTÉ Does Comic Relief the show will be gracing our screens with a special comeback.

Announcing the news this morning on his RTE Radio One show, Ray said that he will also be joined by some very familiar faces including Zig and Zag, and of course Dustin the Turkey.

Hilariously, Ray had his business meeting with his co-stars the same way everyone else is at the moment; “I had a weird Zoom meeting this morning with Zig and Zag and Dustin.”

“It’s going to be a bit of craic it’s going to be a bit of fun. The old gang back together.”

The show will see a host of Irish celebrities joining in on fundraising events, including stars of hit show Normal People, Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar Jones. There will also be numerous presenters on the night including Nicky Byrne, Deirde O’Kane, Eoghan McDermott and Jennifer Zamparelli.

Money raised from the event will be donated to charities that have been struggling during the Covid-19 pandemic. Due to government restrictions they have been unable to host many of their usual annual fundraisers so are lacking in vital funds needed to run their services.

Also joining on the night is the cast of Derry Girls, which is sure to make for hilarious viewing. Many other comedians are taking part too including Amy Huberman, Chris O’Dowd, Aisling Bea, John Bishop and Dara O’Briain.

For the first time the event is set to take place live which host, Deirde O’Kane is excited about; “After three years of fantastic live fundraising events, it’s so exciting to be bringing this to TV for the first time in Ireland with RTE.”

“It’s going to be a memory-making night that’ll raise serious funds to help people who need it most as a result of Covid-19.”

The show will be aired on RTÉ on Friday 26th of June.
